Quality of Exel Rims?

Hey everyone, I was just looking into purchasing some 18 inch rims soon and they have really good deals at wheelmax.com on some Exel rims, I was just wondering if they were good quality or not or if I should get the same style with ADR for more money or some other brand. Thanks in advance for the reply's!

I don't know about the hyperblack because sometimes it looks like you don't have rims when they are spinning, unless they are like the Konig Verdicts in black opal, that are just a little darker silver that looks really good. Are these hyperblack? Because they are a little too dark for me.

Hyperblack is usually that lighter black that you can see and is shiny...it has a gunmetal tint to it...

black is like my rims...

and black is just black with no shine...

and gunmetal is...metal that is gun.

Sorry for bringing this back but I have one more question about these rims before I get them at the end of the month. Should I get 215/35/18 or 225/40/18 for these rims depending on drop, potholes, and looks? Also are they a lot heavier than the stock 16's? thanks.
